His Grace is Enough!

April has just flown by! I can't believe tomorrow is May 1st and I couldn't be more excited! However, these past few weeks have been crazy busy around here. With me going back to teaching and our little family adjusting to that, we've hardly had time to stop. But it's amazing to me how God just provides what we need.

A HUGE answer to prayer is that the Bible and Bookstore building sold. This has been a prayer for years and it has finally been answered. Praise Him! Please be praying for my sweet mother-in-law and grandmother-in-law (Janet and Billie) as they are closing the store this Saturday. This store has not only been a part of  the family for many years, it has been a ministry to the Baton Rouge community. But they know it is time to say good-bye. Please keep them in your prayers, as well as the details of everything coming together for the closing. We know that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him and have been called according to His purpose. Even though things are very overwhelming and emotionally hard right now for them, we know this is part of God's plan. Come by Thursday night (5/2) if you can and share your memories with them. Saturday will be the last day the store will be opened too. So anytime you can stop by to bless Mrs. Janet and Miss Bille would be great!

That's the biggest thing that's going on right now in our family. But we are looking forward to Anna's graduation in a couple of weeks and before we know it summer will be here! 

AG is just getting to be more fun every day. Her sweet smile (which is usually always on her face, even when she's fussing) melts our hearts and we just fall in love all over again. She's eating rice cereal now and loves it, we're about to start her on some veggies. Maybe we'll start with green beans? Ha! (Matt hates green beans) She's doing fantastic with our sweet babysitter...it's me who tears up when leaving in the mornings. But teaching is going well. It is different coming in at the end of the school year, but we're pretty much adjusted now. I'm proclaiming this truth as we finish out this school year and with these changes going on- His grace is sufficient for me, for HIS POWER is made perfect in weakness. Oh how I've seen Him work through my weaknesses! I'd like to share more about our lives, but this is all for now. Here are a few pictures from this last month! 

My friend Courtney took some INCREDIBLE 6 month pictures of Addie girl, wish I could upload all of them, but here's one of my favorites. Hopefully I can put a few more up later. 

               First time sitting in the shopping cart! At Target, of course!
     Laura's Sip and See Shower for baby Jackson! Lovin all these babies!!

Rodeo fun! 

First time eating rice cereal and she already knows what to do!
